Croissant Egg/Egg Monster/Breakfast Feast!

I was looking to be glutenous on a Sunday morning way back when.  Well, I’m always looking to be glutenous on every Sunday morning.  I LOVE breakfast but sometimes have a hard time finding something different.  I wanted a breakfast platter of sorts and before I knew it I ended up with this feast!  I have never thought of having mushrooms as a side for bfast until traveling around Europe.  Many of the hotels offered this and as a mushroom lover I thought to myself, “why the ‘bleep’ haven’t I thought of this?! I eat mushrooms with everything!”  So, after beating myself up about it right, left, and center I decided this would now be a weekly staple.  What to add with this staple? Well, after being reminded of these amazing European hotels I was quickly reminded of the awesome croissants they served, next came the thought of eggs, then toast, fruit, and my mind soon arrived at the recipe platter below. Simple, quick, delicious, satisfying, and seemingly grander than it really is (who doesn’t love that?)… I present to you… drum roll please… “Croissant Egg/Egg Monster/Breakfast Feast!”

Best Veggie Inspired Pho Ever!

As promised, here is my follow-up recipe that is in the picture below with the Sesame Noodles.  Also, I’d like to mention that I am desperately trying to get all of my ancient photos into my recipes so that I can solely move forward with proper food photography.  If you’ve read my “About Me” you’d know that in order to get this blog up and running I needed to use crappy iPhone and other crappy photos from well before I’d ever owned an amazing camera and had thoughts of food blogging or food photography. Bear with me! Soon enough I’ll be able to only post my newest and ‘best-est’ photos for you.  Until then, you’re stuck with this.

Onwards, this dish was served in addition to my Sesame Soba Soy Scallion Noodles for hubbies bday.  I had absolutely no idea how this was going to turn out but thankfully, it was amazing!  Full of flavor, pretty, and instantly popular.  After a few bday beers let’s just say we were indeed slurping it up, however, not slurping gracefully.  It reminded me of my teenage years when my mother told me to never order pasta on a date.  Not because one should never do that, but because I, specifically, should never do that.  Thanks for the advice, mom!  I think you just may have been right.  With that in mind, slurp sloppily and enjoy!
